Wipe Them Out!: With less than two years left in Pres. Rodrigo Duterte’s term, Sen. Bong Go during the virtual hearing of Finance Subcommittee B Friday, October 16, 2020, on the proposed 2021 budget of the Department of Agriculture calls on Agriculture Sec. William Dar to intensify its efforts in going after smugglers of agricultural products in the country. “Let’s help each other, let’s go after these smugglers,” Go told Dar.
